Explorer Director’s Corner

 

One of the issues we’re spending a lot of time thinking about is the future of the petroleum geoscience workforce. It’s a topic we’ve covered extensively in the EXPLORER and one that I’ve written about repeatedly in this column. A broad trend observed in the U.S. economy is a move toward “on demand” labor. Also known as the “gig” economy, there is a push to hiring contract or self- employed workers to fill specific job tasks.

“When you think about the future of energy in the year 2025, seven years from now, I see ______?” This was one of the digital interactive questions asked at the Energy Transitions Forum in Amsterdam last month. The answers from a room of energy professionals were telling: diversity, renewables, energy, change, hybrid, oil, gas. The Forum addressed how companies and geoscientists can broaden their roles for energy transitions that can include a lower-carbon future.

While there is a diversity of views about the topics and terms of sustainable energy development, these are the trends that are shaping our industry, and because we’re a global industry it affects every one of us. AAPG must recognize these trends and engage its current and future members in the discussion.
